Home Link to MySensors



  • I'm looking to be able to hit a button on my cars home link as I drive into the driveway to do...what ever I want through my Vera.

    Any thoughts?



  • Might need some more info, such as car model etc to be able to give more feedback.



  • Home Link is a standard. All cars are the same.

    @csa02221862 My understanding is that HomeLink buttons can be programmed to learn devices in a frequency range of about 300-433 MHz so there are a few options. I know some people that have programmed the buttons with an X-10 remote and use an X-10 receiver. There's also (a now discontinued) Wayne Dalton HomeLink to z-wave bridge. You can find them on eBay. You should be able to use some 433MHz remotes to program it as well which you could use with a 433MHz MySensored receiver.

    Cheers

  • HomeLink is supposed to be able to 'learn' any code from 300-433mhz and then repeat it. It can even learn rolling codes. It could easily be used as a scene controller if you have a MySensors node with a 433mhz RX just following the same methodology used here.



  • Sparkman, this is exactly what I want to do. Was wondering if anyone had done it yet?

    @csa02221862 The easiest may be to use something like this and connect to an Arduino: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321816823725 and use the remote to program your HomeLink buttons. Not sure how secure it would be though.
